If you've seen Mirror Mirror, you know how stunning all of the costumes are. The incredible designer, Eiko Ishioka, created over four hundred pieces for the film, and the care and attention paid to each one is incredible. To celebrate, we decided to create a definitive ranking of our favorite costumes. Check out our rundown, watch the movie, and tell us if you agree in the comments.
19. The Walrus Costume
Frankly, the less said about this the better.
18. The Tortoise Costume
It's a pretty amazing costume, but it's pulled the short straw in being a brown and muddy green color in a sea of beautiful neutrals and reds.
17. The Stag Costume
How cool is this guy? The simplicity of this costume is great, and we love the contrast between the hard structure of the antlers and the soft jacket. Also, with winter coming up, we're pretty jealous of that scarf.
16. The Wedding Guests
The Queen's wedding guests' costumes are stunning in their complete visual chaos. Each piece takes inspiration from multiple cultures and eras, and the result is an incredible carnival of color. We're really into it.
15. The Animal Costumes
They may be in the background of the ball scene, but some of these costumes are incredible. That sheep gown, the texture of the owl costume, the prawn headpiece that turns into a wig... Amazing.
14. Renbock's Peach Costume
When Renbock and the Prince get left naked in the forest, the Queen generously provides them with clothing. The Prince gets a minimal shawl (for obvious reasons), but we really love Renbock's peach and pleated number.
13. The Underwear
After the wedding guests are robbed, they are left with nothing but their underwear and oh my goodness, it is just as good as their outfits. That padding. That caging. We love it.
12. Snow's Bandit Costume
It's by far the simplest costume Snow wears but it communicates so much. She's wearing trousers which actually allow her to move and her shirt is just giving off enough pirate vibes to make clear her she's ready to fight if necessary.
11. The Queen's Green Dress
This is a really subtle gown for the Queen. It's got her iconic peacock emblems, it's got the mixture of hard structuring with soft fabric, and it's got the shoulders that scream, "I'm a badass monarch, ok!?" But at the same time, it's on the simpler side. This is the one time in the movie that the Queen actually attempts to negotiate her feelings, and we see that vulnerability come through in this piece.
10. The Queen's Yellow Robe
If the last gown is subtle, this robe is the complete opposite. When the Prince ignores her advances, the Queen decides that the easiest way to win his affections is by giving him a love potion, and this is the perfect outfit to do it in.
9. The Queen's Peach Dress
This is the first dress we see the Queen wear, and boy is it a beauty. It totally screams excess, and the giant, golden throne does the same.
8. The Prince's Coat
First, this coat is incredible and everyone should have one. Second, we love that when the Prince is under the Queen's spell, he wears her trademark yellow silk.
7. The Rabbit Costume
This costume a fun role-reversal. Usually it's girls wearing the flattering outfits with bunny ears. Another nuanced hint that the hero of this film is Snow.
6. Snow's Wedding Dress
Wow. Just wow. There is so much to this dress. The blue, the bow on the back, the origami-like elements paying tribute to Ishioka's Japanese heritage. We're in love.
5. Snow's Cape
If there is one piece we would steal from the movie, it would have to be this one. Snow is still under the Queen's watchful eye and so she's cloaked in the Queen's signature color. The oversized bows scream innocence and make her look tiny, frail and powerless -- exactly as the Queen wants her.
4. The Queen's Wedding Dress
This is by far the biggest costume in the whole movie, measuring a crazy 8 feet in diameter. This is the Queen's big moment and she's not going to let anyone forget it. We initially just see the bodice of the gown and at first it looks really glamorous and pretty. As soon as the Queen steps out of her carriage, however, we are reminded that she has zero chill. She's taken the minimal elements on top and gone crazy with them. 8 feet wide crazy.
3. The Queen's Yellow Gown
Now this is a look. Beautiful pleating on the bodice? Check. Ridiculous ruff? Check. Classic yellow? Check. This gown has everything.
2. The Queen's Red Peacock Dress
For her ball, the Queen dresses all the guests in neutral colors and then appears having dressed herself as a poison red peacock. Could there be a more evil queen move? The angular lines and slits on the dress scream strength and power, and that feather piece demands so much space that it's clear no one is getting close to this lady.
1. The Swan Costume
Oh Snow. Snow, Snow, Snow. This dress is absolutely incredible. While the Queen's ball gown is all angles and straight lines to convey power, Snow's power comes from her kindness, and this is shown through the soft structure and curves of her costume. The swan another symbol that Snow is transforming into the hero her kingdom needs.
